We believe that the success of Brexit will ultimately be defined by what it delivers for consumers and what matters to them most – standards, choice, rights and price.
There are clearly both opportunities and challenges ahead. There is work to be done to reassure people that their existing rights will be protected and standards won’t be compromised.
But as we leave the EU, we should also grasp the opportunity to forge an even better environment for consumers. With control over all aspects of consumer protection, we can make improvements to be truly world-leading here in the UK.
That’s why we are introducing our Consumer Charter for Brexit – that sets out our views on what needs to happen to minimise those risks and maximise those opportunities.
It is not just the Government who has the responsibility to put consumers first in the Brexit process. As the consumer’s champion, we want to work with Government and business to deliver on the priorities set out in our Charter. And our vision is clear: an economy where people are supported by high levels of rights and protection – and with greater access than ever before to quality, affordable products and services.
